Maple Leafs Senators Betting Tips – Ottawa Defends its Home Ice

Toronto Maple Leafs @ Ottawa Senators – Saturday February 23, 2013 7:00PM EST

The online sports book experts are watching the battle between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators in the Northeast Division very closely. The entire Northeast Division, with the exception of the Buffalo Sabres, is all bunched up together. The Montreal Canadiens lead the division with 23 points, followed closely by the Toronto Maple Leafs, Ottawa Senators and Boston Bruins, all at 20 points. Each game played between any two teams in this group is critical to playoff positioning and determining which teams will battle for the Northeast Division title at the end of the season.

The Toronto Maple Leafs is finally getting goaltending it can live with from goaltender James Reimer. The betting world knows that injuries prevented Reimer from playing to his full potential last season. Now that he is healthy, he is playing well. On the other side of the ice, the Senators could not be happier with the play of goaltender Craig Anderson. Things looked a little shaky for Anderson last season, but he was a rock by the time the playoffs rolled around. Much to the delight of the Senators, Anderson was able to keep that pace of play and carry it into the shortened season.

Why the Maple Leafs Will Win

The sports betting world knows that the Toronto Maple Leafs can score goals, but this season that added element of reliable goaltending is really helping Toronto to stay competitive. The Leafs crash the opposing net and score in the ensuing chaos. Toronto has also become quite adept at creating odd-man rushes against the opposition. The Senators will have to deal with all of this while also trying to find ways to beat Reimer in the process.

Why the Senators Will Win

The Ottawa Senators win hockey games by pounding the opposition into submission. The Senators play a very physical style that wears most teams out by the third period. While the Toronto Maple Leafs are an exceptionally well-conditioned team, even the Leafs will start dragging after two periods of getting smacked around by the Senators. The worst part is that the Leafs will have to deal with Craig Anderson if Toronto can manage to get past the rest of the Senators’ defense. This will be a very physical game and, if it remains physical all night, then that will definitely go in Ottawa’s favor.

The Bottom Line

These two teams do not like each other and that should make for a very hard-fought game. The goaltending at both ends is exceptional from these teams and the ability to score goals is there. But Toronto has this ability to always be at the right place at the right time, especially against the Ottawa Senators. Look for the Leafs to pull this one out in the last minutes; possibly in overtime or a shootout.

Pick: Toronto Maple Leafs
